1939 GERMAN NSFK WWII BADGE FOR POWERED AIRCRAFT PILOT!

Nationalsozialistisches Fliegerkorps Badge, "National Socialist Flyer's Corps" badge. This does not get any better than this, a stunningly killer badge in a hyper-rare 2nd variant that was all early pre-war stamped aluminum. The first pattern badge was only in cloth, and was only available between July 12th of 1938, until this metal badge came out on May the 1st of 1939.

This badge is 10.1 grams of all aluminum construction (non-metallic and non-magnetic for a reason). The horizontal pin assembly is in excellent and strong fixed position, and there are no defects to the award at all. I should also mention that the badge is extremely rare, as there were few pilots that qualified for the award.

This type of badge is also rare because it was the way the German’s got around the limitations of the Versailles Treaty that forbade them from having a larger size Air Force (Luftwaffe). What the Germans did, was to form these "Flying Clubs" within the structure of the N.S.F.K. all around Germany to train pilots in anticipation of a larger Luftwaffe dream, which they eventually did construct. The NSFK utilized nearly 4000 glider flying sites throughout Germany. The NSFK owned a total of sixteen gliding/aviation schools and four larger State Soaring Schools (Reichssegelschulen), often sharing space at actual Luftwaffe fields. The badge is mint, unissued. guaranteed.

I have taken loads of photos from every angle so that you can judge for yourself the absolute beauty of this badge.
